Colour and sight: Dark brown-red. A compact white-yellow, stable and lacing head. Scent: Touches of caramel, mocha and chocolate. Spices such as liquorice and coriander are also present. Flavour: Initially, a very good mouthfeel of alcohol and softness. This is followed by an increasing bitterness, partially from the hop, but also from the roasted malt and chocolate malt. Towards the end a nice balance between bitterness, sour and sweet.

hmm...not brown / red as people say. Tap, cloudy, pale yellow. Skunky, dry banana, strong yeast aroma. Sour, sweet, ...not great. tastes like lots of stuff I dont like. black licorish....citricy, acidic. A little bubblegum. weird.

Pours a brown/red murky color with huge head. Aroma is malts and alcohol. Interesting taste. I taste alcohol, tobbacco and apricots- or some fruit along that line. Strong, but pleasant alcohol flavor. Kind of like eating, smoking, and drinking all at once. A very drinkable ale; not my favorite, but definatly worth trying.

bdigital (658) - Ft Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 13, 2007
Huge Cream colored head on the pour. Ruby red in color and very bubbly. Has a strong tropical fruit aroma to it with some mild malt hints. Very fruity taste with a little spice and malt note to it. Way too carbonated for me. Not my cup o tea, but not a bad brew by any means.
